Did we fail to mention that Aretha Franklin was her grandmother?

15-year-old Grace Franklin walked into the audition room to perform “Killing Me Softly with His Song” and “Ain’t No Way” for judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie but walked out without a golden ticket.

Perry was on board from the start, while Richie and Bryan were not impressed.
